Protests have taken violent form recently

DUBAI - The authorities in Bahrain have warned people not to join protests planned for next month by a new opposition campaign named after Egypt's "Tamarod" opposition movement.

The interior ministry issued the warning late Saturday about "illegal demonstrations and activities that endanger security" following calls for protests under the slogan "Bahrain Tamarod" (Rebellion in Arabic).

The Bahrain Rebellion Movement issued its first communique online on July 3, calling for a demonstration on the August 14 anniversary of British forces leaving in 1971.

The interior ministry of the Arab Gulf nation warned that security forces will "deal with any attempt to disturb security and stability".

Egypt's Tamarod campaign launched protests that prompted the ouster of Islamist president Mohamed Morsi by the army on July 3.

Recently, the Shiite anti-government protests have eased but have taken the form of violent attacks against state institutions and security forces in the kingdom.
